    So that means you are amazed with S5? You must be in different planet. Don't force people not to get disappointed after all the great expectations. All humans feel that way except maybe YOU!
    Moto X is plastic so as Nexus 5 but take a closer look at the beauty of the look. S5 back looks hideous... awful. And the color gold is so so bad. They force to go with Gold because apple did it.

    Overall it is the most powerful smartphone on paper.

    By the way, Moto X active display and Touchless control are still the greatest innovation [stupid comment removed by moderator]

    No, I just know a good smartphone when I see one and I don't fall in line with the whole "it has to be metal/no capacitive buttons/vanilla Android" crowd. Argue all you want, but outside of the storage issue (which isn't that big of a deal with a 32 GB option and expandable storage), this has every making of a top tier phone. People are just hating on it because it's no longer cool to like Samsung phones.

    If you say so.

    Samsung got into this position by marketing their products as "cool".

    I just think that the "hype" was so high for the S5. The rumor mill was churning out some amazing features. When the actual phone specs get released people feel let down.

    Personally I think the phone sounds solid and I like the overall look.

    EDIT: Not the gold though, to me the gold is ugly

    The camera on the S4 was already incredible...how much improvement did you expect?


    I wouldn't go that far, it's decent but not near incredible, still doesn't come close to the Jesus phone's camera imo

    That's why we should never listen to the rumor mill
    The only thing that actually didn't meet the rumors was the resolution, which is fine as is .

    Delurking to express my admiration for you on your handling of the S5 rollout. Just a year ago we were at war on One vs. S4

    I always said what I thought they needed to change. They did it. So far I like what I see and am considering getting one for myself.

    So many good looking devices being launched this year though. Tough choice.

    ....Same horrible physical home button (ughhh), Basically the same capacity battery, a couple more megapixel camera, no improvement to the screen, it's significantly larger and heavier with only a 0.1" bump in screen size. No metal body as had long been rumored, same cheap s*** plastic look and feel as other Galaxy phones. Not a thing to really "move the needle." No 4000Ma battery, no optical image stabalization, no ultra HD screen, etc. In short, a serious piece of s***.
    Samsung, you're going to get you *** handed to you by Apple.
    This is just pathetic.
    What's wrong with the home button?

    People complain about plastic but what are phone cases made of?

    It's durable.

    If the battery, performance, and camera are all as good as they appear to be, there should be very little to complain about. Not that that will stop people.

    What would be funny is if Samsung come out and say "WE WERE JUST TROLLING that was a dummy prototype and this is the real Galaxy S5" and show a metal version with a QHD screen and other goodies..

    Tbh i am a apple user and read every single post in this thread (yes maybe sad but i dont know much about droid) the S5 will be my first droid.

    OP said in 1st page Apple dont release a phone with no beta tag ... Well they did bring out siri which was in beta which they never mentioned in the keynote?.. Anyone remember Apple maps? I always knew once steve jobs is gone apple is gonna fall and it will me being a iphone guy moving to droid and loads of others doing the same... Apple is a 1 trick pony im sick of buying iphones and using them... Its the same sad story we all know all look the same just longer screen and crap resolution... Im really feeling the S5 heck i was willing to swap my iphone 5 64Gb for a S4... The only thing holding me back was the user memory of 9GB we will see what the S5 has if a 32GB variant is released in UK im getting that if not then il wait for something else

    I don't understand all the hate. I'm probably always gonna stick with Moto but whatever. Yes it isn't 2K screen (Way overkill on a phone), not pure metal (don't like metal phones so no hair off my back).

    The S2 and S3 were solid releases then with the S4 they threw every single thing they could think off on it, and that was a bad idea. Not much more you can do after that. It is good that now their refining their software a little bit, which is what they need. They added a fingerprint scanner, I didnt look into it but it would be cool if it was like my laptops where depending on the finger it could open different stuff. A heart rate thing, which goes with the fitness train companies are doing now a days, and thats pretty cool, maybe a little useless with their fitness band, but it dosen't mess with the phone so whatever!
    It dosen't match the rumours, but neither did the Moto X and thats still a great phone. I'm finding good things and I hate Samsung, lol. But this is how you should do phones, Apple's starting to do more, but still keeping it, samsung has their thing, and sure HTC One2, and Moto X2 arn't going to be drastic changes either.

    I was disappointed for sure. Expected a newer look or something I guess. Not many truly useful new features for me if any. It seems like the third iteration of the gs3 or something. Hopefully there is a GS5 prime or something similar this fall. I fear Samsung will lose even more market share this year and the GS5 will sell less then the GS4.

    From what I read, aluminum & 5.25 or 5.2 in. with more screen real estate (and no, not 0.1 more).

    Loose more market share? Granted sales of the S5 may be lower than expected but Samsung did not loose market share last year. They increased their market share in many places.
